Trump "has proudly sparked passionate often divisive emotions about things, I think Americans living here to eager to turn out and express their views", he said.

But there are still plenty of detractors, as loudly demonstrated by a passenger in vehicle driving past the U.S. flag-adorned pub who shouted "F*** Trump", to which Mr Smyth chuckled. "They like me a lot in the United Kingdom".

But as President Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday, he will find plenty of people who think it is more important to oppose him than it is to nurture USA -U.K. ties.

Ms Menon, who is part of a group who crowdfunded the balloon, said: 'We know that behind the humour of this the Trump baby represents a whole multitude of campaigns and issues.

The US president gave a brief wave to the crowd before descending the steps holding the hand of the First Lady, who wore a fitted beige dress and red belt.

A giant inflatable "Trump baby" will not be allowed to fly over the USA president's Turnberry golf course when he visits over the weekend, Police Scotland have said.

When asked about Trump's remarks, May said in Brussels: "What we are doing is delivering on the vote of the British people. that's what our proposal does".

Trump's victory in the 2016 presidential election shocked British diplomats in Washington and relations between May, a vicar's daughter, and Trump have been strained at times.




The Trump Baby Blimp is inflated during a practice test, at Bingfield Park in north London.

He is due to stay overnight at the ambassador's Winfield House residence in London's Regent's Park, where demonstrators plan to play recordings of migrant children held in U.S. detention centres. A spokesperson at the U.S. Embassy in London said there was nothing political about the timing of the alert, that such warnings were routine.

Its appearance in central London was approved by the Greater London Authority.

Opposition MPS, backed by an online petition signed by almost 1.9 million people, called on May to cancel the state visit offered when she met Trump in Washington after his inauguration in January previous year.

Besides protests, United Kingdom supporters of President Trump are also scheduled to hold Pro-Trump rally outside the US Embassy in London.

Melania's day won't be spent entirely apart from her husband, as she and Donald are set to meet the queen at Windsor Castle, where they will take tea with the royal after watching a military parade.

We're more than used to our best sports-stars and celebrities being picked up as "British" in the English media when they're on the rise, and "Irish" when they're underperforming or in trouble.

On Friday, Trump will meet May and her newly appointed Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt at the prime minister's countryside retreat, Chequers.
